asked Her Majesty's Government:How many applications were made to the Immigration Appeal Tribunal for leave to appeal to the Tribunal against decisions of adjudicators in 1975, 1976 and the first nine months of 1977 by the Home Office and by appellants' representatives respectively, and how many in each category were granted and refused.

About 1,525 applications for leave to appeal to the Tribunal were made to the Tribunal in 1975 and about 1,600 in 1976. Records do not show how many of these were made by the Home Office and how many by others. The number of appeals by the Home Office lodged with the Tribunal was 77 in 1975 and 110 in 1976. The number of appeals lodged with the Tribunal by others was 250 in 1975 and 499 in 1976. The figures for appeals lodged with the Tribunal include cases where leave to appeal was granted by an adjudicator and some appeals to the Tribunal at first instance. No corresponding figures for 1977 are yet available.
